filling in form

When filling in insurance forms for a motorcycle do I have to tell them I was cought speeding in my car, In all the years I have been riding (passed my test in 1961) I took ten years out to bring up a family I have never been cought speeding riding a bike, Plus they dont take into account no claim bonus from a car to a bike

So far as I am aware

you have to declare any endorsed fines or items that are on your driving license. As you have a single license (with many restrictions/entitlements), any speeding fines you received in your car will affect any insurance you apply for on any entitled vehicle.

TL;DR: yes, you do have to tell them.

They ask you "Have you ANY motoring convictions in the last 5 years".

Now is that so hard to understand?

ANY convictions in the last 5 years (regardless of what vehicle you got them with) must be declared.

Filling in form advice from MCNcompare

Kidderman1, the majority of insurance companies DO need to know about previous convictions and 'hiding' them could mean your policy will be null and void if they find out at a later stage. 

The amount of a risk they then see you as depends on when the offence was and how serious it was which, in turn, will determine the price of your policy.
With regards to your no claims bonus, I am afraid you are right, you can't carry a NCB across from a car  to a bike.
